It was another lackluster weekend at the movies.
As Deadline points out, there's yet to be a $100-million opening, and it doesn't look like anything on the way is going to change that. "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" managed to stay on top in its second week out, despite dropping 52-percent of its audience and having three new movies opening national wide. Speaking of, "The Purge: Anarachy" came in at number two, "Planes: Fire and Rescue" came in at number three, and "Sex Tape" finished a disappointing fourth. "Transformers: Age of Extinction" rounded out the top five.
Pauly heard from a coworker that Sex Tape wasn’t funny at all… the only laughs in the Cameron Diaz comedy came during the end credits.

An Army veteran who hurt his back during the Iraq War is worried a citation will result in him losing his 14 pet ducks, which he says are therapeutic.
Darin Welker said officials in the village of West Lafayette told him to get rid of the ducks in May and cited him for a minor misdemeanor on June 23 for failing to comply. Walker is scheduled to appear in Coshocton Municipal Court for a hearing Wednesday and could face a $150 fine.
Welker, 36, says the ducks help him with depression and post-traumatic stress disorder and keep him more active.
